When it comes to an interactive activity like karaoke, watching a display highlight lyrics as you sing them can already be a thrilling experience. If those lyrics were being shown in a holographic display, they would appear to fly right off of the screen, making singing all the more engaging for the performer and their audience.
Right now on our MadeWith site you can find an app called Zepping Maguro that gives us a peak at the future of live reading. Though this app, designed by a Unity developer named Segur, is technically more of an homage to the long and labor-intensive history of tuna fishing, it shows us a glimpse of a future wherein holographic displays leverage the ability to communicate depth to make text more interactive.
Designing these experiences like these also means that it may be easier for the performer to bring the lyrics of their favorite power ballad to life since the visuals will be more compelling.
Every night (and even during the day) scores of songbirds flock to karaoke bars to sing their favorite songs to their hearts content. In the age of the hologram, singers in bars all over the world will be able to give us more interactive and engaging shows that we'll never forget.
